Happy Birthday Jessica

This is a card I made for my neice who is turning 20 next week!! And I plan to get a gift card for one of her favorite stores to attach to the inside.

Cut a 3-3/4″ x 11-5/8″ piece of CS. Score it at 1″, 6-3/8″ and 6-5/8″ using your paper trimmer with scoring blade. Crease along the score lines using your bone folder.
Stamp your greeting from your favorite stamp set on the 1″ “flap” at the bottom of the matchbook in black ink - you want make sure it is right side up when your matchbook is closed.
Mat a 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ piece of DP onto the front cover of the matchbook. Set aside.
Stamp a cupcake or other birthday picture onto a 2-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ piece of white CS in black ink. Color in the cupcake color pencils. I added glitter to the background of my cupcake.
Take one of Stampin’ Up!’s small open-ended envelopes and trim the envelope so that it is 5-1/8″ long – make sure that the end you trim off is the open end with the flap. Punch a 1/2 oval out of the top front edge of the envelope using a wide oval punch.
Stamp a image on the envelope and color to match.
Grab your matchbook, place the bottom of the envelope in the crease of the 1″ flap. Staple the 1″ flap closed (to hold the envelope in place) with 2 staples (you want them to be less about 1/8″ up from the bottom edge).
To create your tag take a 3-1/4″ x 4-3/4″ piece of CS. Punch out a wide oval corrosponding CS and fold it in half over the edge of the CS. Stick it in place with adhesive.
Punch a hole through the wide oval tag with a hole punch. Tie a 6″ piece of ribbon through the hole and trim the ends.
Stick your gift card to the tag with one mini glue dot. You’re done! Hope this is clear, let me know if you have any questions!!
